AFL has expanded its wholesale property team with the appointment of Barry Rowland and Chris Cavani.
Prior to joining AFL as director of P&C, Rowland was a facilities and binder partner at JLT Re.
Meanwhile, Cavani joins the carrier from Alston Gayler where he served as head of property and will become a director in AFL’s property practice.
Commenting on the appointments, AFL chairman Toby Esser said: “We are delighted to welcome Barry and Chris to the growing AFL team. They bring rich insurance experience spanning almost 50 years combined, and have excellent relationships with the London market as well as internationally, particularly in North America.
“I believe 2018 will be a year of significant change for the P&C business, with fresh opportunities for independents like AFL to present a real alternative as choice becomes more limited elsewhere. We look forward to further growing our presence in this space.”
AFL launched a new wholesale property practice in October 2017 with the appointment of Lockton’s Neil Crouch to lead the division.
